Animals are here for us to kill, eat..

I am bombarded with facebook posts from vegan peers, convincing me to 'wake up' to what we are putting 'innocent' animals through etc etc.


Can someone please enlighten me?

I have my fair share of vegan and non vegan tips i agree and don't agree with,


However just fail to understand why there is a minority trying to change the world as we know it,

As far as I'm concerned, killing animals has gone back hundreds of thousands of years and will continue to do so, thats, in my opinion, what animals are here for.


I'm really not one of those 'anti vegan' I respect and value the information I gather from these people while I make my decision as to whether or whether not killing animals is a positive thing in terms of morals


But surely morals don't come into it? We are animals and animals are here for us to kill and eat, surely suggesting anything else is being in denial of what or who we truly are?

When down the line of humanity did all of a sudden people begin to think animals had feelings? Why are people only saying this in the last few years?

As far as I am concerned I will continue to eat, and agree with animals being eaten, for the rest of my life as will my children (if I have that influence)

The first rule of being a vegan, is letting everyone know your a vegan.

Each to their own I say.

You get a paradox from vegans sometimes. When we say that eating meat is natural and has gone on since the dawn of time, they say we're more evolved and should get over that. But then they also say that animals are our equals and we shouldn't be using them for our own purposes.

Ah thats the oldest one in the book.

I've no issues with vegans and have plenty of friends that are,
I just get a little offended when they are posting videos of animals being killed on my news feed being like ''How can you not stand up for this innocent pig?!?!'


Yet surely that's our purpose as humans/animals?

Yes i agree with that big time.

I do think veganism is to some extent, selfish,

People with nothing to eat in the world, and vegans turning down meat as it is not 'right'

No such thing as veganism in third world countries, or even many other countries, Turkey, Africa, etc.

I'm pretty sure 30% or so of India is vegetarian. The planet would be a better place if we all ate less meat. The seas are almost out of fish too.

Something makes me doubt its from a moral perspective

Instead of calling me anti vegan, could you at least try and explain the idea?

I'm open to correction with the idea, but my question here is genuinely, how do vegans think human evolution can change?
